Well, I’m on day 4 of my four day weekend. This is it.
It’s okay, though. Because this time next week, I’ll be on Thanksgiving vacation. So it’s all gravy. Literally.
I’m joining Lyndsey over at A Year of Many Firsts to take a quick moment to say all that I’m thankful for. Well, I won’t say every.single.thing or we’ll be here all day so I’ll try to just hit the bullet points. I’ll try really hard.
First, I’m thankful for the hubby. He is a big, giant Teddy Bear that tries to act tough, but he’s not. Not really. I mean, don’t mess with me, just to be on the safe side, because he’s very protective of me, but deep down, he is a Teddy Bear. Sometimes, the guys at work call him Grumpy Bear. Also, Care Bear. As you can see, Bear is a theme here. My family has this huge Teddy Bear joke with him — I won’t go into it here, but trust me. It’s DYING LAUGHING HILARIOUS. SNORTING DYING LAUGHING CRYING HILARIOUS.
The hubs watches chick flicks with me. He cooks because I don’t want to know how. He sews my buttons because I don’t want to know how. He fills my car up with gas because I don’t want to know how.
We both enjoy movie marathon days. And we both love love love dogs. And we both enjoy food. And going to the movies. And wine. And traveling when we can.
That about sums up our similarities.
Yep. I’ll say that does it because I don’t like the History Channel. Or jogging. Or video games. Or snowboarding. Or snoring.
My church. That picture is actually taken at church a month or two ago. The mister and I help out with the Baptism ministry once a month. I love my church.
Well, obviously, I am thankful for my family. My mom, dad, brother, older sister, twin, two nieces, and three nephews. We really have a good time together. Lots of laughter. See Teddy Bear reference.
My family is comfort to me. Hugs and relaxing. Food. Games. Laughing.
I’m thankful my parents are still together. And in love.
My school. I love my job. I am so blessed to have a classroom of my own on the grade level that I love, at a wonderful school in an amazing location.
Mostly, I am thankful for my girls at school. I would die without my girls. They let me be myself. Our lunches and get togethers and chit chats save me. I am super super super thankful for Laurie, Heather, Stephanie, Kristy, Alicia, Natalie, Meghan, and Nicole.
Sydney. Awwwww. I am just so thankful that she is still going strong and is still here with us 16 months after we lost Foster. She makes me so happy. She can also be very naughty and that can drive me crazy, but still. I wuv her. Even when she waits until I’ve sat down on the couch, gotten comfy under a blanket, and sighed a big sigh . . . Only to slam the back door blinds against the window in a big ole temper trantum because I should have known she needed to go outside. Oh, and did I mention she has a doggy door? Turns out, my niece and I are the only ones using it.
Hi, if you are new here my name is Jennifer and I am a former Arizona teacher. But I am so much more than that… I am THAT teacher who went into teaching because I loved working with children. I am THAT teacher who loves inspiring children to learn new things. I am THAT …
